If CBD didn’t work, if it wasn’t effective, or getting remarkable results in thousands of people’s lives, big pharma wouldn’t have been a copycat. Truly, this speaks volumes!
Keep in mind that their “formula” of medicine containing CBD also consists of toxic synthetic ingredients. Therefore, any of the positive benefits of CBD in their prescription has been drastically altered in a negative way.
This isn’t moving forward or on a positive note. It’s actually comical and proof that the pharmaceutical industry wants to jump onto the CBD band wagon because they know it’s in high demand. (No pun intended.)
If we want to know their hidden motive, we must follow the money trial. The pharmaceutical industry is aware of by the year of 2020, the CBD industry is estimated to grow by 700%.
They want to package up CBD in a pretty bottle, claim that it's a quality drug, and then gain billions of dollars by using this phony marketing scheme. Do not fall for this trap. It can come with a steep price. Your health. Your mind. Your future.
Unfortunately, Western medicine failed when they attempted to make a replica of CBD. You can’t combine a pure ingredient with synthetic, toxic ingredients and expect to get the same results. It’s not logical, nor scientifically possible.
Who is Epidiolex prescribed for? From my understanding, it's an anti-epileptic drug for patients diagnosed with intractable seizures, severe epilepsy, and rare forms of epilepsy.
The FDA approved Eipdiolex on June 25, 2018. From my understanding, it was approved for a British company called GW Pharmaceuticals. Epidiolex is a cannabis-based medicine, which is derived from marijuana.
Of course, once the pharmaceutical company alters the cannabis, it is no longer the same. In addition, it is not of equal quality, strength, nor effectiveness once it's altered and mixed with toxic, synthetic ingredients. (Pure CBD + Toxic Ingredients = Poison)
I have a hunch that once Big Pharma creates their first CBD medicine, others will soon follow. Remember, they want a big slice of the pie. They know how effective, therapeutic, and beneficial cannabis truly is. Good chance, we can expect additional CBD copycats in the near future.
Do you want the real scoop on the CBD copycat, Epidiolex?
According to Drugs.com, "Epidiolex can cause serious side effects, including this long list:
"Epidiolex may cause liver problems. Your healthcare provider may order blood tests to check your liver before you start, and during treatment. In some cases, treatment may need to be stopped.
Call your healthcare provider right away if you develop any of these signs and symptoms of liver problems during treatment:
Loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting.
Fever, feeling unwell, unusual tiredness.
Yellowing of the skin or the whites of the eyes (jaundice).
Unusual darkening of the urine.
Right upper stomach area pain or discomfort.
Epidiolex may cause you to feel sleepy, which may get better over time. Other medicines (e.g., clobazam) or alcohol may increase sleepiness. Do not drive, operate heavy machinery, or do other dangerous activities until you know how Epidiolex affects you.
Like other antiepileptic drugs, Epidiolex may cause suicidal thoughts or actions in a very small number of people, about 1 in 500. (My side note is that not one single life is worth losing over this toxic drug.)
Call a healthcare provider right away if you have any of these symptoms, especially if they are new, worse, or worry you:
Thoughts about suicide or dying.
Attempt to commit suicide.
New or worse depression.
New or worse anxiety.
Feeling agitated or restless.
Trouble sleeping (insomnia).
New or worse irritability.
Acting aggressive, being angry, or violent acting on dangerous impulses.
An extreme increase in activity and talking (mania).
Other unusual changes in behavior or mood.
How can I watch for early symptoms of suicidal thoughts and actions? Pay attention to any changes, especially sudden changes in mood, behaviors, thoughts, or feelings."
Based on my own experience with multiple toxic prescriptions, I personally believe Epidiolex should have a Black Box Warning for potential dangers, side effects, and long-term consequences. The fact that this medicine may cause drastic changes in a person's personality, behaviors, thoughts, actions, and could lead to suicide is alarming.
In addition, I believe patients should avoid going cold turkey or abruptly stopping this drug. This leads me to question the possibility of wicked withdrawals from Epidiolex or fatalities.
Why risk the potential dangers and destructive drug side effects? Why take Epidiolex when you can benefit from "real" pure CBD? It’s a no brainer!
What I love most about non-GMO CBD is that it's made from hemp oil, which is rich in omega 3 and 6. Also, here's therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant in CBD:
- A natural anti-inflammatory.
- A natural anti-seizure.
- A natural anti-tumor.
- A natural antibacterial.
- A natural anti-viral.
- A natural antidepressant.
- A natural anti-anxiety.
- A natural antioxidant.
- A natural anti-spasmodic.
- A natural anti-nausea.
My own CBD oil journey started over two years ago after my mom was diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer. As you can imagine, my family and I were desperate to find natural alternatives to decrease her physical pain, emotional challenges, nausea, and cognitive damage.
The biggest lesson learned on my CBD journey: Not all brands of CBD oil are equal. Always do your research, educate yourself, and gain as much credible information as possible. Look for a non-GMO brand. Avoid all synthetic ingredients. Aim to use CBD made from transparent and reputable companies who list every single ingredient on the bottle and their website.
As for the milligrams and CBD dosage, in my experience less is more. Start with only a few drops under your tongue twice daily; morning and early evening. On your second week, you can increase by one or two drops. Gradually, through time, you can increase your dose to 5-20 drops, twice daily. Some people, such as myself, find CBD more effective to use smaller amounts three times daily.
Important Fact: There is a time and place for THC. A small amount can work wonders! In the brand that I use, the THC is only .03%, which is minimal. It does not cause euphoria. It will not get you high, but it can get you healthy!
Keep in mind, each person metabolizes CBD differently. Give yourself at least two to three months to determine if this is working effectively for you. It's not an overnight success. It can take time, consistency, and patience.
Lastly, it's trial and error. Just because one or two brands didn't work good for you does not mean that other CBD brands cannot not or will not be effective. I'm a perfect example. I've had several CBD oils that were not helpful, but I didn't give up hope. I did more research and it led to finding much higher quality brands. It was worth it!
